How It Works:

Each author brings a unique set of skills. Some authors are fantastic at writing, but lack marketing prowess. Others have amazing ideas, but aren’t skilled at getting them onto paper. At Apsos, we step in and help whenever and wherever necessary until the project is successfully published.

We can provide the following services:

 

  • Proofreading and Editing: All good writers understand one thing – proofreading and editing are vital to a polished manuscript. No matter how seasoned the author, having an extra pair of educated eyes going over your manuscript is critical to developing a professional piece.
  • Amazon and/or Lulu Formatting: Taking a book from raw document to print-ready manuscript can be a tricky process. We help you identify which kinds of medium you want to publish on and where you want it published. We then take your manuscript and properly prepare for publication. We focus on Createspace and Kindle for our publications (to appear on Amazon) and Lulu for hardcover copies.
  • Cover Design: A book’s cover sends a message to the reader about what they are getting. A compelling cover doesn’t guarantee a fascinating book, but a drab cover can cause potential readers to pass up the work without giving it a chance. We use our experience in graphic design to develop impressive covers suitable for whichever medium you are publishing on.
  • Book Marketing: Many writers hate the idea of marketing, focusing instead on the quality of their content. We understand, and can help you develop social media campaigns to help get the word out.
  • Book Website: A website dedicated to your book will help people find your work via search engines. You can also use conversion-minded landing pages to help tell the book’s story and encourage people to buy it.

What They Say About Our Book Publishing Service

Service Deep Dive

Curious about the finer aspects of this service and how it delivers value? Investigate below!

DO NOT DELETE
Does Apsos take part of my profit when I sell a book?

No, Apsos only charges initial fees. After your book is published, you will only share your profit with your publishing website like Amazon.

DO NOT DELETE
Does Apsos help market the book?

Marketing assistance is part of our available services. We can create social media campaigns or websites around your book. However, that does not guarantee unit sales.

DO NOT DELETE
Do I need to order a specific number of books to get published?

No. Old-style vanity printing required you to order a defined number of units to make it worthwhile for the printer. Sites like Amazon and Lulu allow on-demand printing. That means the books are only available when someone orders them. You can order copies for yourself whenever you want, but you don’t need to make a significant upfront financial commitment.

DO NOT DELETE
Does Apsos guarantee sales?

No, Apsos cannot promise a definite number of units sold. Your publishing success will depend on your subject matter, marketing, and available audience.

DO NOT DELETE
Can I order units of the book at a reduced cost?

Yes! You can purchase books at a retailer discount. That means you can stock up on units and sell them in person or via your website and net a healthier profit.
